An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, etc. All these files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, like the referrer website, is usually supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your server.
